As many as 35% of adults aged 40 years or older in the United States—have experienced some form of vestibular dysfunction – Vestibular dysfunction significantly increases the likelihood of falls, which are among the most morbid and costly health conditions affecting older individuals.

VESTIBULAR THERAPY

Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT) efforts are focused on decreasing the impact a dysfunctional vestibular system has on your balance, fall risk, and overall quality of life. Our physical therapists have all been taken through extensive training to address the unique needs of the patient battling injury to the vestibular organs.

THE MOST COMMON SYMPTOMS WE TREAT:


  • Lightheadedness or dizziness
  • Positional or persistent vertigo (spinning)
  • Headaches, nausea, and vomiting
  • Impaired postural control, balance, or coordination increasing fall risk
  • Oscillopsia (severe visual blurring when you move your head side to side)

More About
Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT)

When an injury occurs to the brain, inner-ear, or spinal cord the bodies’ nervous system must be retrained to compensate for the disorder. Our VRT exercise programs will emphasize postural stability, visual stabilization training, balance challenges, and dizziness-provoking movement compensation exercise to appropriately challenge your body to recover.

Additional relaxation, massage, and acupuncture techniques are often recommended by our therapists to decrease the mental and emotional distress we so often find in this population. More about this can be found by looking into our wellness services.
